Conditions of Registration or CoR

All about teamwork and support

The BSS Examiner Service Level Agreement (SLA) allows the expression of the terms and conditions of being an authorised BSS Examiner to be both short and simple.

The working relationship between the BSS Team and the BSS examiners is one where support from the BSS is mirrored by individual BSS Examiners reviewing their own activities and performance and addressing any inconsistencies.

Conditions of Registration (CoR)

Every year, you sign an agreement to abide to the CoR, so what are they? The CoR cover the essential examiner activity and responsibilities. As such there is further guidance and details of such actions for example, when carrying out examinations or maintaining knowledge, on the various pages of this website. Get to the CoR from the link at the bottom of this page.

What does it mean, why is it included - help is at hand

We have provided a detailed glossary and explanatory text in a Guidance document to help support examiner looking at the CoR.

Before you agree to examine any boat

There are responsibilities on examiners before starting examinations to check various aspects such as Gas Regulation and CE marking status. Have you a connection with the boat and could it be seen as a conflict of interest? It could even be that you are being asked to examine a boat not capable of being licensed and if a boat fails, do you know what you must re-examine, and when? We provide the directions and support in the Examination Guidance section of this website.

Your safety, your training and other considerations you must have

There are other responsibilities on the CoR that are fleshed-out in the Explanatory document. These will refer on to training, and personal safety and eventually other information in this section of the website.

The additional guidance will help examiners to keep within the conditions and to help examiners better understand the protection the CoR gives them.
